Why You’ll Love Garlic Powder
Love it or hate it, garlic is an inimitable addition to many of the foods commonly eaten today. With its pungent smell and spicy yet savory flavor, it can transform bland dishes into memorable ones in an instant. If you’ve ever enjoyed garlic that’s been freshly chopped and sauteed, or mixed into a sauce, you know how delectable the taste is. And now it’s even easier to replicate that unique flavor with Simply Organic Garlic Powder.
This convenient 3.64 oz. bottle makes it easy to add organic garlic to whatever you’re eating, without any worry about selecting the freshest stock, preparing it, or ridding the strong smell from your hands. Instead, just sprinkle a bit of Simply Organic Garlic Powder on your favorite savory dishes to increase the wow factor without hassle, and gain some extra nutrition in the process.
The benefits and nutrition of garlic powder
Simply Organic Garlic Powder isn’t just a convenient purchase for the spice cabinet; in actuality, garlic also provides a number of health benefits for the human body. Just one clove of garlic contains good amounts of powerful plant compounds known as alliin and alliinase. They activate once the clove is crushed or cut and combine to create allicin, an incredibly strong antimicrobial and antifungal component.
The only problem is that heating garlic actually destroys a lot of the allicin, meaning you can miss out on some of the natural goodness when cooking it. Garlic powder, on the other hand, still retains a lot of the health benefits of raw garlic, making it a tasty and nourishing choice for almost any savory food.
Here are some more reasons to choose Simply Organic Garlic Powder:
- Garlic powder contains no calories. Although the caloric difference between garlic powder and regular garlic cloves isn’t that significant, those that are counting calories will appreciate that Simply Organic Garlic Powder has zero calories per serving.
- Garlic boosts the immune system. With its antiviral, antibacterial, and antifungal properties, garlic has been used for centuries for medicinal purposes, such as cleaning wounds and preventing infections. It’s also pungent enough to open up passages and help eradicate coughs and colds, so if you’re starting to feel sniffly, add a few shakes of this powder to your meals.
- Garlic helps the body absorb nutrients. The high levels of potassium in garlic actually help the body absorb other important vitamins and minerals, which can lead to less digestive problems and the fatigue that comes from nutrient deficiency.
- Garlic is known to be cancer-fighting. It’s kind of hard to believe that something as simple as garlic could play a role in preventing cancer, but according to science, it’s effective in preventing a variety of cancers, including prostate, breast, and colon cancer. Some researchers believe that garlic’s anti-cancer properties are due to the way that the plant boosts the body’s production of hydrogen sulfide.
- Garlic is anti-inflammatory. Chronic inflammation can negatively impact so much of the way the body operates, making us susceptible to acne, allergies, weight gain, digestive issues, joint pain, depression, neurological disorders, and even autoimmune diseases such as type I diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, and multiple sclerosis. By reducing inflammation, the body can remain calm on a cellular level and present less risk for chronic diseases.
- Garlic supports heart health. As we age, our arteries become less elastic and lose their ability to stretch, but garlic can help maintain their youthfulness. Garlic contains compounds that have sulphur, which helps to prevent blood vessels from being blocked. This means a much lower risk for blood clots and heart disease.
Cooking with Simply Organic Garlic Powder
Garlic is a staple in cooking, but rather than crush up cloves yourself, use Simply Organic Garlic Powder to give these dishes ample flavor.
Creamy mashed potatoes are pretty hard to beat, but this recipe is even more irresistible. It opts for red potatoes for even more taste and texture; they are mashed to become partly creamy, and then olive oil is used as an alternate for heavy cream to make the classic side dish healthier. Add on Simply Organic Garlic Powder for a more intense flavor, or use it as a substitute for the fresh garlic completely. Just make sure to add to taste at the end so you don’t put in too much and ruin your masterpiece.
Roasted Brussels sprouts have such an intense, smoky flavor that pairs perfectly with the spice of garlic. In this recipe, add Simply Organic Garlic Powder to cooking ghee to amplify the taste right from the beginning of the cooking process. Roast the vegetables on a baking sheet for 25 minutes until golden and crispy, and then top with lemon juice, Parmesan cheese, and chopped dates once out of the oven for a surprising blend of tart, salty, and sweet. Great on its own, you can also add it as a side to chicken or fish for a complete meal.
You don’t need an authentic wood-fired oven to enjoy the charred flavor of a pizza pie—just throw it on the grill! Start with a homemade dough made from white wheat flour, olive oil, and active dry yeast, then add on the goods. This recipe calls for light tapenade and fresh veggies, but customize your personal pizza to include whatever toppings you enjoy the most. Just don’t forget the garlic—a sprinkle of Simply Organic Garlic Powder on top will add an extra punch of flavor.
Dinner doesn’t have to be a complicated mess of multiple dishes. This recipe puts everything into one pan, making it an easy option for any night of the week. Here, succulent chicken thighs pair with roasted seasonal vegetables, and a tangy premade pesto tops it all off. The chicken will take longer to cook than the veggies, so add those in throughout the cooking time—start with potatoes, add in the zucchini, and save delicate tomatoes for last. If you don’t have garlic, no problem here. Simply Organic Garlic Powder adds in that delectable flavor you crave.
Reviews For Garlic Powder
Based on 26 Reviews
We used Lawry's Garlic Salt for years in our home. I love being able to control the amount of salt (use Kosher now) I cook with and add LOTS of garlic flavor. I go through this bottle like mad. I love the Simply Organic line, I use only this brand for all my spices. I always made sure I have an extra bottle of this one.
Awesome on steamed veggies
Love it on my broccoli, kale, cauliflower, etc...instantly adds so much flavor. I also made fish sticks seasoned with garlic powder...oh sooooooo good.
My husband and I season a lot of our food with garlic/garlic powder, and we were both impressed with how much more flavor this imparts than other brands we've purchased! We love this stuff, and can't buy other brands again.
Simply Organic Garlic Powder
A delicious garlic powder that's also organic.
Flavorful and light. Perfect balance for any herb or spice. High quality flavor
Great, Strong Garlic
My household uses A LOT of garlic on just about everything. We just recently switched from generic store brands to this organic variety and what a world of difference! The taste is much more true to using fresh garlic and the price can't be beat. I highly recommend!
Garlic in a Pinch
I absolutely love this garlic powder. It tastes great and you could never add enough garlic in my opinion to any recipe except sweets. Great flavor for when you don't have the real thing.
- Ana Maria
We love to use this on sweet potato / potato fries. It tastes like garlic powder should, and I love knowing that it's organic!
Love this garlic powder! Great flavor and consistency. It's always in my spice cabinet!
- Tasha Intriere Susi
I love all of the Simply Organic spices. There is a very noticeable difference in quality from other brands. The garlic powder tastes fresh and flavorful; not like it was packaged ten years ago!
Great taste, organic, no fillers or preservatives!
I think Mccormick's is just as flavorful as this, but its not organic, so this one wins hand down!
I am a big fan of garlic! But sometimes chopping the cloves to the perfect grind can be a hassle.
I purchased this garlic powder as a substitution and it works perfectly. It's great that it's organic and low in cholesterol. However, I wish it would contain a little more salt so I don't have to add other spices to season my meals.
- R. Ramos
Solid seasoning, great source
This is a great, solid, reliable garlic powder. I use it in almost every meal. It's even, not clumpy, and very flavorful. I only use the Simply Organic spices and they always deliver. This garlic powder has a fresh, potent garlic taste and I like that they use glass storage instead of plastic for their spices, you can really tasted the difference. It's a great quality spice and superb value for the price here.

Does What It Is Suppose To!
I love garlic and in turn, love garlic powder. I bought this powder to mix with a bread crumb that I rubbed on chicken. Garlic Breaded Chicken- YUM! It is organic and non-GMO! Win!
What I didn't like was the time it took to get to me. I had a coupon so the price was very very good, I just had to wait to cook. Good thing I bought 2!
- Pam Mclaughlin
Great Organic Product
This is the only garlic powder I will be using from now on! It is clearly high quality as it doesn't clump in the container, it gives off a delicious and true garlic scent when you take the cap off, plus it adds a deliciously rich flavor to everything! Great product.
- Shawna M
Pantry must for any garlic lover!
Love having this to cook with - I use it more than I would have thought!
Good as usual
I've been buying Simply Organic since last year. This a brand I can trust. Thanks to Thrive, the wrapping of the product was really good too.
Pure garlic taste
This is one of the most fresh and flavorful garlic powders you will ever get your hands on. It works perfectly in so many dishes. I even use it in recipes that call for fresh garlic all the time.
Never clumps up and you always know it's the best, because it comes from Simply Organic.
- Timothy V
The Best Garlic, Ever!!
Simply Organic Garlic is the best I've come across. The dollar store spices may be larger, but their tastes are pretty small.
My mother and grandmother used to dry and grind their own garlic, what a mess. I prefer my garlic to be ready to go, with all the flavors of my grandpa's garden. It may not taste like just like their old country, but Simply Organic has a wonderful full body taste. It's easy to cook with and I use it on just about everything. They don't call me 'GarlicGirl' for nothin!
This garlic always seems to taste pretty fresh. I like that. Once in a great while I get a clump or two, but I often wonder if it just means someone didn't close the lid tight enough.
These bottles seem to be made perfectly for my spice rack and I often reuse them for storing small things like tacks.
I am really glad the Thrive Market carries Simply Organic!
- Duncan G
Great garlic powder
I use garlic powder religiously and Simply Organic has the freshest I have ever had. This is some great garlic taste. I also like that they bottle their spices in glass, which is not only more eco-friendly (I love reusing them for various things) and also seems to help keep them fresher longer and prevent clumping.
- Jose Ferra
I tend to stick with Simply Organic for most of my spices. It's probably the nit-picker in me, but I prefer all of my spice bottles to match, and I fell in love with the professional-looking spice bottle design from Simply Organic. This Garlic Powder has a pretty potent taste. In fact, I don't ever remember using a Garlic that tasted so intense. It's easy to use, and it's fantastic on pretty much everything I've put it on. It goes really well with my Garlic Bread!
Nothing but garlic
All you get in this jar is powdered garlic. Nothing else. No hidden additives, salt, sugar, etc, just garlic.
It's close to fresh and it goes with just about every savory dish you can imagine, and some you can't. I have this great garlic fries recipe that is delectable. I might post it next time if I get around to it.
- Cass Elton
The one to use
As a frequent cook, I always try as much as I can to use fresh garlic. It just makes a big difference. But there are some days when it's just not feasible, so I grab my Simply Organic powder.
It's the only one I use, and it works really well. It's made of all natural ingredients, with no chemicals added to the extraction process. Most of Simply Organic spices are superior to anything you'll find on the shelves.
Almost as good as fresh
No garlic powder is as potent as fresh-made, but Simply Organic comes close. When you open that bottle, you get a whiff of genuine garlic, and it's strong.
I use it all the time. It's great on homemade pizza, in stews and sauces and as a garnish on whole wheat french bread with a drip of olive oil.
